Minions will gain aptitude towards proficiencies as they spend time working on them. Minions may gain aptitudes towards Skill proficiencies, Tool proficiencies, or 1 class proficiency.
Learning a Skill
Minions learn skills the same way that PCs do (outside of feats), where they need a number of points of aptitude to unlock a level of mastery of that skill, according to the following table.
|Mastery||Points to Unlock||Total Points from Untrained|
What are you training?
For every day spent training, a minion will gain a number of points towards unlocking the skill. The base number of points gained per day will always be 6 + INT modifier of the minion (which could be negative). In addition, they may gain the following additional points of aptitude per day:
- A relevant stat bonus based on the skill (+DEX for Stealth, for example), if they are untrained, or if they are doing hands-on practice.
- If they are being taught, +2 per level of mastery of the teacher above theirs. For example, a Master teaching an Untrained will grant +8 points of aptitude per day.
In short, minions can be trained either Theorical or Hands-on and Guided or Independent.
